The TETON Sports Grand 5500 is a large capacity pack, developed by other rugged backpackers, that meets the demands of your longest and most extreme adventures. Weighing just 5 pounds (without the included tarp poncho), you will barely notice it on your back. It can adequately carry all the gear you need for weeks in the backcountry.
While the size is great, the features and options of this pack set it apart from the rest: The pack is setup for hauling all your alpine equipment including skis, snowboard, or snowshoes; the durable pack shell is made from treated 420D Oxford, which can stand up to even the roughest terrain in the most extreme parts of the world; oversized zipper pulls on the exterior pockets and main compartment zipper are easy to use, even with gloved fingers.
The Grand 5500 provides superior comfort and a precise fit with the help of tension adjustments at the shoulders, chest, and torso. Aluminum stays provide strength and support right where you need it. The dual waist belt has wishbone construction to sit comfortably on your hips. A thickly padded lumbar area provides exceptional lower back comfort. Other comfort features include thick shoulder pads and air channels along your back to maximize air circulation.
The Grand 5500 is also hydration compatible with an integrated Velcro hang tab for easily hanging your hydration bladder. Room enough for a large 3-Liter bladder.
Bonus features include: An exterior zippered pouch that doubles as a removable 3-Liter day pack; two mesh pockets to fit water bottles or other items requiring easy accessibility; multiple side compression straps, and an upper compression strap that help keep gear cinched tight to reduce pack shift.

The sleeping bag compartment has a nice size. I have a double mammoth that definitely wont fit in the compartment. Its for singles sleeping bags. Plenty of pressure straps throughout the sides, top and bottom of the bag. A couple of handy rings along the waistbelt for knives you can clip to. Poncho was stored on top pocket of the bag . It looks very well padded. Hope this bag lasts, not like my last 70L Jansport..top hood clip strap ripped. No more Jansports for me. I went with the Teton because i own a double mammoth sleeping bag and it is AWESOME. I also got some TETON pillows that feel great and are perfect for camping.
So, I purchased a Teton Sports Grand 5500 Backpack for me. I LOVE this backpack. You can tell that a lot of time went in to the design of this pack. My hat is off to whoever is behind the design. The things that stand out most to me on this pack are the quality and the attention to detail.
I love the space in the Grand 5500 backpack, so I can easily fit in what I need. It always seemed like I needed more space in the past. This pack definitely provides that. I like that the sleeping bag compartment is larger than other backpacks I have, so I can much more easily fit a high-quality sleeping bag, air mattress, blanket, pillow, etc. into that compartment. With other packs I've had, most of that stuff has to go on the outside of the pack, and then it gets dirty and clumsily bumps into things. Plus, with the Grand 5500, that gear is much more effectively protected from the elements than just being tied to the outside of a smaller pack. If you do need to put something on the outside of these packs, they have many higher-quality loops, ties and compression straps that don't look like they are going to tear off. If you are a minimalist, less-is-more type of backpacker, then this pack may have too much space for you. If you like to have room to pack and protect the things you really want to make your backpacking trip amazing and comfortable, then you should seriously look at this pack. Have you ever had to ask yourself "Do I really need an air mattress?" or "Do I really need a pillow?" I have, seriously, because the other packs I had were so small. With this pack, you don't have to make those kinds of decisions. And, with the compression straps, you can make the bag smaller at times you don't need all the space.
I really like how the back panels and the torso width are adjustable so they can be highly customized to me. I've never had that luxury before. I love the extensive padding in the lumbar area.
I like the detachable bag for toiletries or other items to which you need quick access. I like the attached poncho/tarp for each of the packs. They not only keep the pack dry in case of rain, but can also be used to create a shelter in a wilderness survival situation. They are bright orange and would make it easy for someone to find you in an emergency.
I love that Teton Sports offers a great warranty and stands behind their products. Although, I have a lot of Teton Sports products, and I've never needed to use the warranty.
I guess I'm just passionate about Teton Sports, and trust the brand and products because of how their products have performed for me. I actually look for their products now and preference those over competitors. In short, Teton Sports provides fabulous quality at a fabulous price.
The videos are great to help learn the tips and tricks of the bag (there's one on Amazon but look on YouTube and you'll find more.)
